Backyard Landscape HDR Test

This is a view from our bedroom window I shot to test the "remove ghosts" feature in Photoshop CS5 HDR Pro.  There was a gentle breeze yesterday, so the leaves and grass were moving enough to smear a little at 1/5s.  I must say that there is little if any apparent movement.  I processed the shot in color, converted to monochrome in Nik Silver Efex Pro using a strong blue filter and titanium toner, then cropped for 11x14 and added the blue/sepia split tone in Lightroom.

Camera: Nikon D700 
Lens: AF Micro-Nikkor 105mm f2.8 D
Exposure: ISO 200, five one stop brackets around f/22 @ 1/5s, auto WB, RAW, tripod
Lighting: Full, strong daylight
Location: Home GPS
Processing: Lightroom 3, Photoshop CS5 HDR Pro and Nik Silver Efex Pro
